According to a new report by The Washington Free Beacon, Iran has been illegally using its commercial airline, Iran Air, to ferry fighters into Syria, where they have taken up arms in defense of Bashar al-Assad’s regime.
The ferrying efforts, which violate the terms of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, also known as the Iran nuclear deal, was hidden by the Obama administration. The report states:
Photographs provided to Congress show Iran using Iran Air to ferry these soldiers between 2016 and 2017, in part when the Obama administration removed sanctions on Iran Air and promoted multi-billion dollars sales between the carrier and aircraft manufacturer Boeing, which is seeking to provide Iran Air with a fleet of new planes that many suspect will be used to carry terrorist fighters and weapons into regional hotspots.
Multiple senior Obama administration officials, including former secretary of state John Kerry, traveled the globe to promote trade with Iranian companies, including Iran Air, at the same time Iran was found to be ferrying militants into Syria. Lawmakers and others suspect the Obama administration either hid or downplayed this information in order to preserve the nuclear deal.
